Open the Device Manager, click on the + sign next to "Network Adapters", then RIGHT click on the new Network Adapter device, choose "Properties". When that opens, click on the "Power Management" tab, then UNCHECK the "Allow this device to wake the computer out of standby", or something similar.
Hope this helps.
Ok, now i am desperate, i have searched loads of forums and cannot find out why my PC randomly boots up in the early hours of the morning...
First things First
OS = Windows XP MCE SP2
MSI K8TNEO FISR
AMD 3400+ 2.4Ghz
1GB CORSAIR RAM
4 internal HDs
RADEON 9800 PRO
OK, i was running XP X64 PRO for 1 and half years with no such random boot ups. I formatted the other day and put on the media center edition of XP. Since then i have the random boot up problem. At between 7 and 8am my PC will proceed to boot up from hibernation. Now its a complete fresh install so definitely not a virus or trojan.
I checked all BIOS wake settings...all disabled, and like i said my PC with X64 has been fine for 1.5years and i havent changed any BIOS settings.
I also installed a BELKIN wireless network card just before i formatted with new OS. Maybe something with this could be triggering...but like i said all BIOS wake settings disabled...
I am seriously stumped by this problem....if anybody could shed some light onto my problem.....i would be eternally grateful.
